    LL 2468 members ratify Siemens AGT contract offer – Les membres de la SL 2468 ratifient l’offre de Siemens AGT

    A journey which began on May 14, 2018, with a different Negotiation Team and which involved three different business representatives, came to a conclusion on April 15, 2020 with the ratification vote by the membership, accepted at 87%.

    These negotiations were the longest in LL 2468 history, lasting almost two years.  They are also the only negotiations which involved a conciliator from the Quebec Labour Board.  The vote itself was also unique in that in order to satisfy government regulations regarding COVID-19, it was an all-day vote held outside, with time slots for voting depending on the voter’s name!

    The new 5-year contract (retroactive to 2018) sees improvements to salary, vision care and banking of time at overtime rates.  A simpler grievance process was also introduced.

    Many thanks to Daren Legault, Michael Munn, Nathalie Meunier, Stéphane Paré, Neil Giroux and Luc Frigon for their efforts in obtaining this agreement.  It was a long process, but we prevailed and secured a satisfactory offer.

    Un parcours qui a débuté le 14 mai 2018, avec une différente équipe de négociation et qui impliquait trois agents d’affaire différents, s’est conclu le 15 avril 2020 avec le vote de ratification des membres, accepté à 87%.

    Ces négociations ont été les plus longues de l’histoire de la SL 2468 et ont duré près de deux ans. Ce sont aussi les seules négociations qui ont impliqué un conciliateur du Tribunal administratif du travail. Le vote lui-même était également unique en ce que, pour satisfaire aux réglementations gouvernementales concernant la COVID-19, il s’agissait d’un vote d’une journée entière à l’extérieur, avec des plages horaires pour voter en fonction du nom de l’électeur!

    Le nouveau contrat de 5 ans (rétroactif à 2018) prévoit des améliorations au salaire, aux soins de la vue et à la mise en banque du temps aux taux des heures supplémentaires. Un processus de règlement des griefs plus simple a également été introduit.

    Un grand merci à Daren Legault, Michael Munn, Nathalie Meunier, Stéphane Paré, Neil Giroux et Luc Frigon pour leurs efforts dans l’obtention de cette entente. Le processus a été long, mais nous avons prévalu et obtenu une offre satisfaisante.
